In Kenya, like in many African countries non-heterosexual orientations are not as widely accepted and recognized as in some parts of the world. This can be attributed to the nature in which most of our cultures are set up; a set-up under which the self-determination of women, youth and anyone that is perceived to challenge the balance of power in society has been oppressed. Apart from cultures, high religiosity and the conservative interpretation of religious doctrines have immensely contributed to not only non-recognition but also in the creation of a pretext that encourages the use of violence and discrimination against same sex loving persons. Studies such as Pew Research’s Global Divide on Homosexuality have demonstrated this obvious fact.

I can say we have come of age. Thank you for the continuous good work that you are doing.
Contrary to popular opinion, or otherwise presumed, I personally would want GALCK to get back on its feet. Albeit, with greater community participation, accountability and honesty. However, the ball now lies with the different groups, within and without GALCK, including indigenous donors, whose own financial skeletons are crying to high Heaven. Take This into account. We are watching. Deign that your efforts to get a good GM/ED are fruitful. Now, what can one buy with 25M? Wait, one can build a residential plot in Roysambu.

In the year 2012, GALCK went through its most trying period. It experienced a multitude of programmatic and administrative changes and was faced with numerous financial upheavals and allegations of malpractice. During the General Meeting Process in the same year, the constituents of GALCK made it clear that an overall evaluation and re-organizing was in order. The recommended processes were initiated by the Transitioning Team from September – December 2012, and taken forward by the GALCK Reloaded Taskforce (GRT) from January 2013 to date.

In our attempts to verify the recent and extremely disturbing reports from Mombasa, we have found out that there were indeed two separate attacks against what we now know to be transwomen in the trade – with the intent to grievously harm and in the second case, kill.
